Employment Assistance Program
MUL's focus for over ninety-nine years has been to provide pre-employment skills training to community residents, stabilize their economic conditions, and increase self-sufficiency. Employment Assistance Program (EAP) provides services to assist job-seekers of all ages and skill levels in preparing for employment, thereby simultaneously meeting the workforce demands of a diverse range of employers.
Employment assistance includes resume preparation, interviewing skills, enhancing computer skills, and completing on-line job applications. MUL Employment Specialists provide EAP clients with one-on-one job coaching, a customized employment plan (including short- and long-term goals), employability training, and case management that includes ongoing monitoring.
Transform Milwaukee Transitional Jobs Program
MUL, in partnership with UMOS, Northcott Neighborhood House, and Silver Spring Neighborhood Center, has successfully operated the Transform Milwaukee Transitional Jobs program since January 2014. Transform Milwaukee Jobs program is an employment program that offers unemployed individuals immediate work. The purpose of this program is to enhance employment opportunities for people who have difficulty entering and succeeding in work.
Financial Opportunity Center
Healthy and sustainable communities are made up of people who have living wage jobs and feel confident about their economic futures. To get there, community residents need the skills to advance along the path of employment and manage their money well. LISC and MUL are partnering to offer employment and career services, financial coaching, and education and low-cost financial products that build credit, savings, and assets. The Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) will provide one-on-one financial coaching and education and low-cost financial products that help build credit, savings, and assets.
